SHIELD S STATUE. 



§ 1. Provides for the appointment of five 
commissioners to purchase a statue 
of Gen. James Shields to be placed 
in the National Statuary Hail, Wash- 
ington, D. C. 



Provides that the commissioners ap- 
pointed shall receive no pay or com- 
pensation for services. 

Appropriates the sum of $9,000 for 
cost and expenses of delivery of the 
statue. 



Whereas, the late James Shields was a Brigadier General in 
the Mexican war and distinguished himself at the battle of 
Cerro Gordo and at the seige of Chepultepec, winning the ad- 
miration and sympathy of patriotic people by the skill displayed 
and by the frightful wounds received in the bitter struggle; and 

Whereas, the same James Shields, at Winchester, on March 
23, 1862, defeated Stonewall Jackson in one of the hardest 
fought battles of the civil war, receiving in the desperate strug- 
gle serious wounds in the arm, shoulder and side; and 

Whereas, the same James Shields was congratulated by Gen- 
erals McClellan and Banks, and Secretary Edwin M. Stanton, 
"for the energy, activity and bravery" displayed at Winchester, 
and was further honored by Governor Curtin of Pennsylvania., 
by an order directing that the flags of the Pennsylvania regi- 
ments be inscribed "Winchester, March 23, 1862;" and 



48 APPROPRIATIONS. 



Whereas, the same James Shields, besides winning- fame as a 
brave and fearless General, added laurels to his crown as a pub- 
lic servant, statesman and jurist, as United States Senator from 
Illinois, ■ Minnesota and Missouri, as Auditor and Judge of 
the Supreme Court of Illinois; and 

Whereas, Congress has invited each State of the Union to 
furnish two statues in marble or bronze of two of its deceased 
citizens illustrious for their historic renown or for distinguished 
civic or military service, and deemed worthy of national com- 
memoration, and to have the same placed in the National 
Statuary Hall at Washington, D. C; and 

Whereas, the State of Illinois has hitherto failed to furnish 
any statues for such purpose; and 

Whereas. General Shields, as a hero in two wars, a public 
official, jurist and statesman, richly deserves to be selected as 
one of Illinois' illustrious citizens, and to have the above men- 
tioned statue placed in the National Statuary Hall. 

Therefore to carry into effect the views hitherto expressed the 
following bill has been framed : 

An Act to select commissioners to expend not to exceed nine 
thousand dollars in purchasing a heroic bronze statue of the 
late General James Shields, cast in standard bronze metal, 
and a bronze or granite pedestal for the same properly in- 
scribed and ornamented, and also to bear the cost of trans- 
porting them when completed to the National Sta,tuary Hall

same, properly inscribed and oi-namented, and ^also to defray 
the cost and expenses of transporting them when completed to

prosecution of the business by payments to be made either at 
periods named in the contract or upon assessment as required, 
by persons holding similar eontracs, and wherein the insuied's 
liability to contiibute to the payment of policy claims accrued 
or to accrue is not limited to a fixed sum shall be deemed to 
be engaged in the business of life insurance upon the assess- 
ment plan, and shall be subject only to the provisions of this 
act; but nothing herein contained shall be construed as appli- 
cable to organizations which conduct theii' business as fraternal 
societies, on the lodge system, or to organizations which limit 
their certificate holders to a particular order or fraternity, aird 
which do not employ paid agents in soliciting business, and 
which are now permitted to do business in this State, ov to the

•employes of a particular town or city, designated firm, business 
house or corporation; or to organizations which are incorpo- 
rated and limit the amount of every certificate issued to a maxi- 
mum not exceeding |50() on any one risk. 

§ 8. Every such life insurance corporation shall accumulate 
and maintain a reserve or emergency fund equal to such sum 
as might be realized fiom one assessment on, or periodical paj^- 
ment by policy or certificate holders thereof, and in no event 
less than the amount of its maximum policy or certificate. 
Such fund, if not already accumulated, shall be accumulated by 
every such existing corporation, within six months from the time 
this act takes effect, and by every corporation hereafter formed 
under this act, within six months from the date of its incor- 
poration, and shall be held for the purposes for which such fund 
was created or accumulated. In case such fund or any portion 
thereof shall have been used by the corporation for the purpose 
or purposes for which the same was created or accumulated and 
the amount thereof thereby reduced to less than the amount of 
one death assessment or periodical payment, the amount of 
such reduction below the amount of one death assessment or 
periodical payment shall be made up and restored to said fund 
within six months thereafter. Such fund may be held in cash 
or invested in the same class of securities required by law for 
the investment of funds by insurance corporations; and nothing 
herein contained shall prevent the creation and accumulation of 
other funds in excess of the amount herein required to provide 
for the purposes of such corporation. If such fund is in excess 
of the amount of one death assessment or periodical payment 
upon all certificates or policy holders and not less than the 
sum of one hundred thousand dollars, the excess or any portion 
thereof may be used in the reduction of assessment or periodical 
payments by policy or certificate holders by ratable cash divi- 
dends or credits, or in such other equitable division or appor- 
tionment thereof as its rules or contracts may provide, and 
such use shall not be deemed or construed to m^an a profit re- 
ceived by members within the meaning of the statutes of this 
State, or the pro rata excess on Mny policy or certificate term- 
inated by death or surrender ma.y be refunded to the holder or 
beneficiary, as may be provided for in said policy or contract: 
Provided, that nothing contained in this act shall be construed 
to permit any contract promising any fixed cash payment to 
any living certificate or policy holder, excepting in the con- 
tingency of total physical disability. 

§ 9. No corporation doing business of life insurance under 
this act shall issue a certificate or policy upon the life of any 
person more than sixty-five years of age, excepting in case of 
transfer of policy holders as provided herein, nor upon a life in 
which the beneficiary named has no insurable interest. Any 



122 INSURANCE. 



assignment of the policy or certificate to a person having no- 
insurable interest in the insured life shall render such a policy 
or certificate void. 

§ 10. Every such life insurance corportion doing- business 
under this act shall on or before the first day of March in each 
year, make and file with the Auditor of Public Accounts a re- 
port of its affairs and operations during the year ending on the 
thirtj^-first day of December immediately preceding, which report 
shall be in lieu of all other reports required by the insurance 
law of this State, and shall be in such form as the Auditor of 
Public Accounts may require. Such reports shall be verified bj^ 
such of the officers of the corporation as the Auditor may re- 
quire. Any corporation refusing or neglecting to make such re- 
port, or to make payment of any of the fees required by law 
shall upon the order of the Auditor cease to do business in this 
State until such report and payment shall be made and until 
the costs of such action be paid.

tingency of death or other physical disability of the assured

for the payment of policy claims, the accumulation of reserve 
or emergency funds and the expenses of the management and. 
prosecution of the business, by payments to be made, either at 
periods named in the contract or upon assessment as required 
by persons holding similar contracts, and wherein the insured's 
liability to contribute to the payments of benefits accrued or to 
accrue is not limited to a fixed sum, shall be deemed to be en- 
gaged in the business of accident insurance upon the assessment 
plan, and the business involving the issuance of such contracts 
shall be carried on in this State only by duly organized and 
authorized corporations, which shall be subject only to the pro- 
visions and requirements of this act. Nothing contained in this 
act shall be construed to apply to secret or fraternal societies, 
lodges or councils, now doing business in this State, which con- 
duct their business and secure members on the lodge system ex- 
clusively, having ritualistic work and ceremonies in their socie- 
ties, lodges or councils, and which are under the supervision of 
a grand or supreme body, nor to any association organized 
solely for benevolent purposes and not for profit, and which do 
not employ paid agents in soliciting business. 

§ 12. Everj^ such accident insurance corporation shall accum- 
ulate and maintain a reserve or emergency fund, of at least five- 
thousand dollars. Such fund, if not already accumulated, shall 
be accumulated by every such existing corporation within six 
months from the time this act takes effect, and by every cor- 
poration [organized] under this act within six mouths of the 
completion of its. organization and the receipt of its certificate 
of authority to transact business in this State, and every cor- 
poration subject to the provisions of this act shall add to such' 
emergency fund thereafter two and one-half per cent, of the-

amount realized from every premium, assessment or periodical 
call until such fund shall be equal to the amount of two dollars 
for every five thousand doLars of insurance in force. Such 
emero'encj fund or any part thereof, may be used for the pay- 
ment of death and inclemuit\^ claims: Provided, that if th& 
amount of such fund be thereby reduced below the amount 
contemplated in this act the amount by which such fund is re- 
duced be made up and restored within six months thereafter. 
Such fund may be held in cash or invested in the same class of 
securities required by law for the investment of funds by insur- 
ance corporations, and nothing herein contained shall prevent 
the creation and accumulation of other funds in excess of the- 
amount herein required to provide for the purposes of such 
corporation. 

§ 13. Every such accident insurance corporation doino; bus- 
iness under this act shall, on or before the first day of ]\larch 
in each year, make and file with the Auditor of Public Accounts 
a report of its affairs and operations during' the year ending on

•or to make payment of an}^ of the fees required by this act, 
•shall upon the order of the Auditor cease to do business in this 
State until such report and payment shall be made, and until 
the costs of such action be paid. 

§ 14. This act shall not be construed to limit the accumula- 
tion of a resprve or emergency fund by any corporation subject 
to the provisions hereof. Any such coi-poration may in its dis- 
icretion, through its officers or directors, deposit with the Audi- 
tor of Public Accounts such securities and for such amounts as 
may be approved by him. All other investments of reserve 
funds shall be made in the same class of securities as are al- 
lowed by law for the investment of funds by insurance corpora- 
tions. 

§ 15. Every policy or certificate hereafter issued by any cor- 
poration doing business under this act, and promising payment 
to be made upon a contingency of death or physical disability, 
shall specify the sum of money which it promises to pay under 
such contingency, and the number of days after satisfactory 
proof of the happening thereof on which such payment shall be 
made. Upon the occurrence of such contingency, unless the con- 
tract shall iiave been avoided by fraud, or by breach of its 
•conditions, the corporation shall be obligated to the beneficiary 
for such paj'raent at the time and to the amount specified in 
the policy or certificate. If such corporation shall refuse or fail 
to make such p lyment for sixty days after final judgment has 
been obtained upon such claim, the Auditor shall notify the 
•corporation not to issue any new policies or certificates until 
such indebtedness is fully paid; and no officer or agent of the 
corporation shall make, sign or issue any policy or certificate 
of insurance while such notice is in force. 

§ 16. No such corporation organized under the laws of this 
:State shall transfer its risks to, or reinsure them in any other 
■corporation, unless the conti'aet of transfer or reinsurance is 
first submitted to and approved by a two-thirds vote of a meet- 
ing of the insured, called to consider the same, of which meeting 
a written or printed notice shall be mailed to each member, cer- 
tificate or policy holder at least thirty days before the day fixed 
for such meeting. If such transfer or reinsurance shall be ap- 
proved, evei'y member, certificate or polic.y holder of the corpor- 
ation, who shall file with the secretary thereof, within ten days 
after the meeting, a written notice of his preference to be trans- 
ferred to some other corporation than that named in the con- 
tract shall be accorded all the rights and privileges, if any, in 
aid of such transfer as would have been accorded under the terms 
of such contract, had he been transferred to the corporation 
named therein. No such corporation organized under the laws 
of this State shall transfer its risks or assets, or any part thereof 
to or reinsure its risks, or any part thereof, in any insurance

corporation of any other state or country which is not at the^ 
time of such transfer or reinsurance authorized to do business 
in this State under the laws thereof. 

§ IT. The Auditor of Public Accounts shall, at the request of 
any corporation doing- business under the provisions of this act 
in this State on the assessment plan, make an examination of 
such corporation and shall furnish a certificate of the results of 
such examination showing* all its assets and how invested, and 
such other particulars as may be deemed necessary to show 
the character and condition of said coiporation and the neces- 
sary expense of the said examination shall be paid by the cor- 
poration requesting" the same. 

§ 18. All corporations to which this act is applicable, witb 
their books, papers and vouchers, shall be subject to visitation 
and inspection by the Auditor of Public Accounts or such person 
as he may designate. The Auditor may address any inquiries 
to any such corporation in relation to its doings or condition 
or any other matter connected with its transactions relative to 
the business contemplated by this act. All officeis of such cor- 
poration shall promptly reply in writing to all such inquiries- 
under the oath of its president, secretary or other officers if re- 
quired. When the Auditor on investigation shall be satisfied 
that any corporation organized under the laws of this State 
doing business in this State of the character defined in this- 
act is insolvent because of matured death clain^s or other 
obligations due and unpaid, exceeding its assets and death 
assessments or periodical payments called or in process of 
collection, or has exceeded its powers, failed to comply with 
any provision of law, or is conducting business fraudulentlj^ 
he shall report the facts to the Attorney General, who, if 
he' shall be of the opinion that the facts require such ac- 
tion, may thereupon apply to any court having jurisdiction 
thereof, within the county in which the ])rincipal office of such 
corporation within this State is located, for an order requiring" 
the officers of such corporation to show cause, at a reasonable 
time and place within such county, why sucli corporation should 
not be restrained from continuing to transact business, with 
power to the court to adjouin the hearing thereon from time 
to time, not exceeding sixty days in ,'dl. 

§ 19. Such corporation shall be entitl(d to be heard and to 
a trial by jury, of the facts stated in this report, if the same be 
traversed, and to examine papers and witnesses under oath in 
the usual mode of trials of actions. If the trial is by jury, the 
court shall submit to the jury specific requests to find covering 
the matter's in issue separately, and the jury shall return a 
special verdict upon each question submitted, and if by such 
verdict it shall be found that the corporation is insolvent be- 
cause of matured death claims or other obligations due and un- 
paid, exceeding its assets as hereinbefore provided, the court 
may render judgment that it and each officer thereof be perpet- 
ually enjoined from exercising any corporate rights, privileges-

or franchise, and that it be dissolved and a receiver be ap- 
pointed, an account taken and an equitable distribution of its 
property among- its creditors and policy holders be made, or it 
may, at its discretion, order an additional assessment or call to be 
made upon the certificate or policy holders to meet such defi- 
ciency. If no charg'e of insolvency is made in such report, or, if 
made, is not established by the vfrdict of the jury, but it shall 
be found by such verdict that the corporation has exceeded its 
corporate powers or failed to comply with any provision of this 
act, or has conducted its business unlawfully, the court may 
make and enter a judgment enjoining and restraining it from 
the commission of such acts or such of them as the court may 
determine, and in case of failure to desist therefrom within the 
time to be specified in such judgment that the corporation be 
dissolved. 

§ 20. No order, judgment or decree providing for an account- 
ing or enjoining', restraining or interfering with the prosecution 
of the business of au3^ domestic insurance corporation subject 
to the provisions of this act, or appointing a temporary or 
permanent receiver thereof, shall be made or granted otherwise 
than upon the application of the Attorney General on his own 
motion, or after his approval of a request in writing therefor 
by the Auditor of Public Accounts, except in an action bj^ a 
judgment creditor or in proceedings supplementary to execution. 

§ 31. Any corporation organized undei' authority of another 
state or government to issue, or which is engaged in the busi- 
ness of issuing policies or certificates of life or accident insur- 
ance on the assessment plan, as a condition precedent to trans- 
acting business in this State, shall deposit with the Auditor of 
Public Accounts a certified copy of its articles of incorporation; a 
statement under oath of its president and secretary, in the form 
b^^ the Auditor required, of its business for the preceding year, 
a certificate, under oath of its president and secretary that it 
is paying, and for the twelve months then next preceding has 
paid the maximum amount named in its policies or certificates 
in full, a certificate from the proper authority in its home state 
that corporations of this State, engaged according to the pro- 
visions of this act in life or accident insurance on the assess- 
ment plan, are legally entitled to do business in such state; a 
copy of its policy or certificate, application and bj'-laws which 
must show that the insured's liability to contribute to the pay- 
ment of benefits is not limited to the payment of a fixed periodi- 
cal sum, evidence satisfactory to the Auditor of Public Accounts 
that the corporation accumulates a fund equal in amount to 
that required of similar corporations of this State; that such 
accumulation is permitted by law of its corporation and is for 
the benefit of policy or certificate holders only, and is invested 
in securities authorized under the law of its incorporation. The 
Auditor shall thereupon issue or renew the authority of such 
corporation to do business in this State, and such authority 



INSURANCE. 127 



shall be revoked wheneyer the Auditor, on investigation is sat- 
isfied that such corporation is not paying the maximum amount 
named in its policies or certificates in full. Upon such revoca- 
tion the auditor shall cause notice thereof to be published in a 
nevvspape ' of general circulation published at Springfield, and 
no new bi^ siness shall be thereafter done by it or its agents in 
this State. If any such corporation is authorized by the law 
under which it is incorporated to issue contracts of insurance 
uot contemplated in this act it shall, nevertheless, be permitted 
to transact in this State the character of business authorized 
by this act, upon complying in all other respects with the re- 
quirements thereof and filing with the Auditor an agreement 
duly executed by the proper officer and a bond in the penal 
sum of $5,000 vyith approved security that such corporation 
will not enter into or issue within this State any contract of 
insurance, policj' or agreement not authorized by this act. 
Upon a breach of such agreement by an^^ such corporation the 
Auditor of Public Accounts shall forthwith revoke and cancel 
its authorit}^ to transact busmess in this State. When any 
other state or country shall impose any obligation upon any 
such corporation of this State the like obligation shall be im- 
posed on similar corporations and their agents of such State 
or country doing business in this State. If the laws of such 
state where such corporation is organized will not admit cor- 
porations organized in this State or doing business under this 
act to do business in such state, then such corporation shall 
not be admitted to do business in this State. The Auditor is 
authorized to place such construction upon the minor provisions 
of the insurance laws of other states as will, in his judgment, 
harmonize with this law, when justice and equity will so warrant. 

§ 22. Every such corporation shall, before doing business in 
this State, appoint in writing the Auditor of Public Accounts 
or his successor in office to be its true and lawful attorne.y, 
upon whom all process in any action or proceeding against it 
be served; and in such writing shall agree that any lawful pro- 
cess against it which is served on said attorney shall be of the 
same legal force and validity as if served on the corporation, 
and that the authority shall continue in force so long as any 
liability remains outstanding against the corporation in this 
State. A copy of the writing, duh^ certified and authenticated, 
shall be filed in the office of the Auditor, and copies filed by 
him shall be deemed sufficient evidence thereof. Service upon 
such attorney shall be deemed sufficient service upon the princi- 
pal. When legal process against any such corporation is served 
upon the Auditor he shall immediately notify the corporation 
of such service by registered letter, prepaid, directed to its sec- 
retary; or in case of a corporation of a foreign country, to the 
resident manager, if any in this country; and shall within two 
clays after such service, forward in the same manner a copy of 
the process served on him to such secretary or manager, or to 



128 INSURANCE. 



any person previously designated by the corporation in writing. 
The plaintiff in each process so served shall pay to the Auditor 
at the time of such service a fee of two dollars, which shall be 
recovered by him as a part of the taxable cost, if lie prevails- 
in the suit. The Auditor shall keep a record of all processes 
served upon him which record shall show the dav and hour 
when such services was made. 

§ 23. Any solicitor, agent, examining physician, applicant or 
other person who shall knowingiy make any false or fraudulent 
statement or representation in or with re erence to any appli- 
cation for insurance, or for the purpose of obtaining any money 
or benefit, in, or to any corporation transacting business under 
this act shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction,, 
shall be punished by a fine of not less than one hundred dol- 
lars, nor more than one thousand dollars, or by imprisonment 
in the county jail for not less than one month nor more than 
one year, or both, at the discretion of the court; and any per- 
son who shall willfully make a false statement of any material 
fact or thing in a sworn statement as to the death or disability 
of a certificate or policy holder in any such corporation for the 
purpose of procuring payment of a benefit named in the certifi- 
cate or policy of such holder shall be guilty of perjury, and 
shall be proceeded against and punished as provided by the 
statutes of this iState in relation to the crime of perjury. 

§ 24. Memberships in any such corporation shall give to any 
member thereof the right, at any time, with the consent of such 
corporation, to make a change in this payee or payees, or bene- 
ficiary or beneficiaries without requiring the consent of such 
paj'ee or beneficiaries. 

§ 25. The money or benefit provided or rendered by any cor- 
poration authorized to do business under this act, shall not be 
liable to attachment by garnishee or other process, and shall 
not be seized, taken, apptopriated or applied by any legal or 
equitable process, nor by any operation of law, to pay any 
debt or liability of a policj^ or certificate holder, or any bene- 
ficiary named herein. 

§ 26. Any officer or agent of any such corporation, associa- 
tion or society subject to any of the provisions of this act, who 
shall neglect or refuse to comply with any such provision, or 
who shall make in any report or statement any intentionally 
false or fraudulent statement, or shall refuse to permit the 
Auditor or any examiner duly authorized by him for the pur- 
pose to make an examination of its condition and business, 
books, papers and vouchers; and any person who shall act 
wdthin this State as agent, solicitor or collector for any such

Auditor the certificate of authority to transact business in this 



INSUKANCE. 129 



State required by law, shall forfeit to the State the sum of one 
hundred dollars for every such offense. If an examination of 
the condition and business of any such corporation transacting- 
business in this State shall be prevented by anv such refusal, 
the Auditor shall revoke the certificate ol authority issued to 
such corporation, and it shall thereafter be unlawful for it to 
do business in this State until it shall have submitted to an 
examination, and the Auditor shall have issued to it a new cer- 
tificate of authority authorizing it to continue business in this 
State.

represented in the General Assembly: That the word insane in 



LUNATICS. 141 



this act shall be construed to mean any person who, by reason 
of unsoundness of mind, is incapable of raanao-ing- and caring 
for his own estate, or is dang^erous to himself or others, if per- 
mitted to go at large, or is in such condition of mind or body 
as to be a fit subject for care and treatment in a hospital or 
asylum for the insane: Provided, that no person, idiot from 
birth, or whose mental development was arrested by disease or 
physical injury occuring- prior to the age of puberty, and no 
person who is afflicted with simple epilepsy shall be regarded 
as insane, unless the manifestations of abnormal excitabilty, 
violence or homicidal or suicidal impulses are such as to render 
his confinement in a hospital or asylum for the insane a proper 
precaution to prevent him from injuring himself or others. 

§ 2. Except as hereinafter provided, from and after the pass- 
age of this act no insane person, or person s.upposed to be in- 
sane, but who shall not have been legally adjudged to be insane, 
shall, by reason of his insanity or supposed insanity, be re- 
strained of his liberty: Provided, that this section shall not be 
construed to forbid the temporary detention of an alleged 
lunatic, for a reasonable time, not exceeding ten days, pending 
a judicial investigation of his mental condition. 

§ 3. When any person shall be, or be supposed to be, insane, 
any reputable citizen of the county in which such patient resides 
or is found may file with the clerk of the county court of said 
county a statement, in writing, under oath, setting forth that 
the person named is insane and unsafe to be at large, or suffer- 
ing under mental derangement, and that the welfare of himself 
or others requires his restraint or commitment to some hospital 
or asylum for the insane; the said statement must be accom- 
panied by the names of the witnesses (one of whom at least 
must be a physician having personal knowledge of the case), by 
whom the truth and allegations therein contained may be sub- 
stantiated and proved: Provided, that when it shall appear hj 
such statement that the person alleged to be insane has not 
been examined by a physician, the judge may appoint a qualified 
physician of the county to make such examination and allow 
him compensation therefor, not exceeding five dollars, which 
shall be taxed and collected as is herein provided in respect 
to other costs in proceedings in inquest of lunacy. 

§ 4. Upon the filing of the statement aforesaid, unless the 
person alleged to be insane shall be brought before the court 
without a writ, or unless an affidavit of some credible person 
shall be filed setting forth that, in the opinion of the affiant, 
the physical or mental condition of the said person is such 
(stating the same) as to render it manifestly improper that 
such person be brought before the court, the judge of the county 
shall direct the clerk to issue a writ, directed to the sheriff or 
to any constable or to the person having custody or charge of 
the person alleged to be insane, commanding such person to be

brought before the court at such time and place as the judge 
may appoint for the hearing and determining of the matter; 
and in no case shall such hearing take place until the person 
alleged to be insane shall have been notified as the court shall 
direct. 

§ 5. Inquests in lunacy shall be by jury. 

§ 6. When no jury is demanded and the circumstances of the 
case are such that there appears to the judge to be no occasion 
for the impaneling of a jury, or that a trial by jury would for 
any reason be inexpedient or improper, the judge shall appoint a 
commission of two qualified physicians in regular and active 
practice who are residents of the county, to be chosen by him- 
self, on account of their known competency and integrity, who 
shall make a personal examination of the patient and file with 
the clerk of the court a report in writing verified by affidavit, 
of the result of their inquiries, together with their conclusions 
and recommendations. The commissioners herein provided for 
shall have power to administer oaths and take sworn testimony. 

§ 7. In all cases of inquest by jury, the jury shall consist of 
six persons, and one of the jurors at least must be a qualified 
physician, and the proceedings shall conform in all respects, as 
nearly as may be, to the ordinary practice of the county court. 
The rights of the persons whose mental condition is inquired 
into shall be the same as those of au}^ defendant in a civil 
suit. 

§ 8. Inquests in lunacy may be in open court or in climbers, 
or at the home of the person alleged to be insane, at the dis- 
cretion of the court; the judge shall preside, and the presence 
of the patient shall be indispensable and no proceedings can be 
had in his absence. The judge may require all persons other 
than the patient, his friends, witnesses, licensed attorneys and 
officers of the court to withdraw from the court room during 
the inquest. 

§ 9. The jurj'- or commission, as the case may be, shall furnish 
to the court in writing answers to such interrogatories as may 
be contained in a form to be prescribed b}' the Sate Commission- 
ers of Public Charities, and shall certify that the same are cor- 
rect to the best of their knowledge and belief, which interroga- 
tories shall be submitted to the medical member or members of 
the jury or commission by the court.

person adjudged to be insane is not insane, or because he has 
recovered from the attack of insanity, or because he has so far 
improved as to be capable of caring for himself, or because the 
friends of the patient request his discharge, and in the judgment 
of the superintendent no evil consequences is likely to follow

patient in question to all his rights as a citizen, and, if a con- 
servator of his estate shall have been appointed, the said con- 
servator shall be removed. At any time, subsequent to the

or conservator or relatives out of his estate, as the court may 
direct. In all cases where the person alleged to be insane is 
found not to be insane, the court may, in its discretion, require

INVESTIGATION OF THE "WHISKEY TRUST. 

Whereas, It is charged and generally believed there is now^ 
in existence and assuming to exercise the functions of a lawful 
corporation in the State of Illinois and other states of the 
nation a concern known as the Cattle Feeders and Distilling Com- 
pany, and popularly designated as the "Whiskey Trust," said 
concern being organized under and by virtue of the laws of th& 
State of Illinois, being capitalized at forty-five million dollars, 
and having its principal office at Peoria, Illinois, said corpora- 
tion pretending to do business in conformity with the constitu- 
tion, statutes and common law of Illinois; and, 

Whereas, Said corporation has established and inaugurated 
a system or method of transacting business apparently in har- 
mony with the laws of Illinois, but being in reality a cunningly 
devised scheme, creating a monopoly, trust and combination in 
violation of the laws of Illinois, and a conspiracy against the- 
good people of this commonwealth, enabling said corporation 
to stamp out competition, terrorize consumers, extort unlaw- 
fully the money of the people and jeopardize life, limb and 
property; said system or method of doing business by said 
corporation being to charge the purchaser or customer of the 
corporation using its product of alcohol spirits or other 
products first five cents per gallon and afterwards seven cents 
per gallon more than the regular market price for such product, 
and upon such advance in price being paid said corporation 
issues its so-ca'led rebate voucher, sai(i voucher containing a 
provision or condition that the purchaser should for a period 
of six months purchase all the products made by such coi-pora- 
tion which the purchaser may use from said corporation, 
whereupon the money so exacted and withheld for said period 
of six months would be return^^d to the purchaser without in- 
terest or compensation for exacting or withholding the same; 
and 

Whereas, It is pretended and given out by said corporation 
that the method or system adopted by it is a mere trade regu- 
lation, and 



JOINT RESCLUTIONS. 183- 



Whereas, The sale of the product of said corporation! 
amounts to millions of ^'allons every month, and 

Whereas, It is charged and generally believed by divers good 
people of the United States that the amount exacted and with- 
held from the unwilling and helpless purchasers amounts to 
from three to five millions of dollars for every period of six 
months; and 

Whereas, It has been charged and generally believed by the 
good people of the State of Illinois, and of the other states in 
the Union, that the claims made by said corporation that said 
method or system is a mere trades regulation is a pretext and 
a sham, and that the practical and actual effect of the said 
method or system is to create and foster a vicious and unlaw- 
ful monopoly of the business of distilling, and has liiven power 
to and caused said corporation b}' its agent to commit unlaw- 
ful and criminal acts in its efforts to crush out competition and 
enable it to unjustly extort from the people millions of dollars. 
Furthermore, the following are some of the evil effects of the 
existence of said corporation : 

First — By exacting and extoi ting from its unwilling customers 
the millions of dollars of the customers money, the corpora- 
tion is enabled to and has purchased and controlled all com- 
peting distilleries in the United States, paying therefore hun- 
dreds of thousands of dollars as bonys or premiums to com- 
petitors to stop and discontinue competition. Their driving and 
removing from the market the competition which would other- 
wise exist and using the money extorted from the consumers 
for that purpose. 

Second — It is further believed and charged by divers good 
people of the State of Illinois, that by reason of said corpora- 
tion possessing the millions of dollars of its customers which- 
it could not exact or extort if competitive distilleries could be 
safely carried on and operated. Said corporation to maintain 
its power, and monopoly has alarmed and terrorized and fright- 
ened opposition into selling out, where it could not peaceably 
make terms to purchase, by threats to do physical violence or 
cause a total loss of property and fortune, or cause a fear that 
such consequences would result and reference is made to the in- 
dictments in the Criminal court of Cook couutv in cases num- 
ber l;i59, 1413, 1414, 1415 and 1416. Said Gibson being 
variously charged with: l--'59, procuring gun powder with feloni- 
ous intent; 14i3, feloniously procuring gun powder, etc., for 
unlawful destruction of life and property; 1414, conspiracy to 
commit murder; 1415, attempt to commit arson: 141G, feloni- 
ously procuring gun powder for unlawful destruction of life and 
property. All of said indictments relating to and being found 
upon the fact, it is charged and stated, of an actual explosion 
feloniously caused, at the distillery of one Shufelt, a competing; 
distiller, operating a distillery in the city of Chicago.

194 JOINT RESOLUTIONS. 



Third— It is further believed and charged, that said corpora- 
tion solely, by reason of having and maintaining a monopoly, 
acquired by the lawful extortion of the people's money, and by 
reason of purchasers being unable to obtain goods outside of 
the trust, the said corporation wickedly and oppressively ad- 
vanced the price of the products 18 cents per gallon, there be- 
ing no advance in the market price of raw material or labor 
but solely of the power of said corporation to extort the same. 

Fourth — It is charged and believed that said corporation 
compels the merchant to submit to its unlawful practices, by 
threats to discontinue the supply of its product, (which cannot 
be obtained elsewhere), or forfeiting the overcharges extorted 
from the merchants either of which may cause ruin and dis- 
aster to the merchant. 

Fifth — It is further charged that in general the said corpora- 
tion, by being permitted to conduct business on the said 
method or system, has fostered and encouraged complete and 
dishonest acts; and 

AVhereas, It is charged and commonly believed that the ac- 
cused in said indictments, was, at the time of his indictments, 
the secretary of said corporation; and 

Whereas, It is charged and believed that it appears, from 
the record of the court, that no trial or public prosecution of 
said indictment was had; and 

Whereas, It, has been publicly claimed -by the agents of said 
corporation beitore a congressional investigating committee that 
trials were had of charges as contained in said indictments and 
said charges were not sustained ; and 

Whereas. It was also claimed before said congressional com- 
mittee by said corporation representatives that said com- 
mittee had no right or jurisdiction to inquire into the acts of 
said corporation because it was a corporation organized and 
doing business under the laws of Illinois and by the State of 
Illinois; and 

Whereas. It is believed by divers good citizens of the State 
of Illinois and of the other states that the existence of said cor- 
poration and the method or system of doing its business is un- 
lawful and a violation of the criminal laws of the State, and is 
a disgrace and blot upon the good reputation and fame of this 
State and serves to bring the State in contempt and dishonor 
and said corporation should be dissolved and its officers crimi- 
nally prosecuted for their unlaw'ful acts; and 

Whereas, The matters herein are of greatly public importance 
and private individuals are unable to cope with this gigantic 
monopoly, and it is the duty of the State to properly protect 
its citizens and enforce the law; therefore be it 

Resolved, by the Senate, the House of Representatives con- 
curring herein: That a committee of seven be appointed, three 



JOINT RESOLUTIONS. 195 



from the Senate and four frqm the House, to investigate as to 
the truths of the matters herein stated and charged and report 
back to the General Assembly, and especially the following: 

First — Does the Distillers' and Cattle Feeders' Company exist 
and under and by virtue of a charter granted by the State of 
Illinois? 

Second — Does the Distillers' and Cattle Feeders' Company have 
or have they had a system or method of doing business by 
which they exact from purchasers or dealers in distilled goods 
seven cents per gallon more than the market price which they 
withhold for any length of time, and do they at any time for- 
feit the money so withheld, or do they refuse repayment 
thereof ? 

Third — If such corporations exist and enforce such system or 
method what is the natural and practical effect; does it not re- 
sult in creating a monopoly and trust combination? 

Fourth — If such system or method exists or be in force or have 
been exercised by said corporation, is it not a violation of the 
laws of Illinois and subject the corporation to a forfeiture of its 
charter and make liable its others to a criminal prosecution? 
Said committee shall have full power to send for books, papers 
and persons which they may deem material to the investigation. 
The committee shall have the power to emploj^ a clerk and steno- 
grapher. The expense of the investigation shall be defrayed 
from the contingent expense account.

YACHT HARBOR ON LAKE MICHIGAN. 

Whereas, We recognize that it is for the public welfare of 
the State of Illinois and her people that the lake commerce of 
the State should be promoted, that the most should be made 
of the great advantage afforded by the situation of the city of 
Chicago upon Lake Michigan, and that knowledge, skill and 
experience in navigation and seamanship among the people of 
the State should be fostered and encouraged, so that not only 
her commerce and merchant marine may be thereby benefitted, 
but that the people of Illinois may derive greater benefit from 
these advantages for recreation and pleasure, and also that 
there may be established a capable and trained naval reserve 
for the use of the Government of the United States in case it 
should be required; and 

Whereas, We further recognize the public importance and 
necessity, for these purposes, of a safe and convenient harbor 
at Chicago for yachts and other vessels and crafts not engaged 
in commerce; and

supercargoes of vehsels and to provide or raise means therefor 
and to establish and train a volunteer marine and naval force 
in connection therewith, provided such a free school may be estab- 
lished in the waters of Lake Michigan in front of the shores 
thereof; and 

Whereas, The Secretary of War of the United States did on 
the 29th of September, 1892, by virtue of the sixth section of 
the act of Congress passed on the 19th da^^ of September, 1891, 
issue a license to the Yacht Club of Chicago, empovvering and
